Reviews

“It’s been almost a year now. I want to thank you for helping guide me through a very difficult time in my personal life. The words you wrote in your final letter have proven to be a touchstone. You reminded me that even though my ex-wife was being very disrespectful to me and my boys, we were still good people. I’m still working on my own life but am retired. I would not have been able to do things as well as I did were it not for your calm, objective advice. Thank you for making a huge difference. Live well.”

– Husband, Lansing

I'm hoping we are the poster children for the benefits and positive power of successful mediation. Both my husband I feel we had an excellent team guiding us, and the process had immeasurable benefits to the well-being of our children. Our unified 'co-parenting' arrangement contradicts every stereotype they have of divorce, and doesn't give them one 'bad guy' to blame.

Karen, first of all…whoa. I seriously can’t begin to EVER thank you enough. I am at least forever grateful to you. In all seriousness, if it wasn’t for all of the work you and your staff put in, I don’t know where I would be right now, but it certainly wouldn’t be where I am today. As I prepare to start my college classes tomorrow, I can only be reminded as how you have treated me more like family than any of my blood relatives and that is something I will NEVER forget.

Thank you for your help this past year. As I have said to you, the single most important thing I accomplished all year, and I bought and sold a company, was getting more time with my children. Thank you for the help and support to make that happen. It has made such a difference in my life, improved my relationship with my kids, and made me a better father. Kudos to you!

– Father of 2

One of the best mediation experiences I’ve had .... thank you!!!

– mediation clients

Well it’s official ... I completed my Masters through MSU💚

Thank you for not only being my amazing lawyer but also my wonderful friend. Thank you for believing in me when I’m not sure I really believed in myself 😘

When I received the email from the program chair this morning, a sense of empowerment ran through my body. It seemed as if overnight I became a single working mom fighting to gain a sense of self. It’s because of women like you who empowered me to persevere and keep moving forward through the challenges. Thank you my friend!

– Single Working Mom

"Lori Buiteweg was absolutely fantastic. She is incredible at her job and is well-informed, skilled and dedicated to her clients. More importantly, she is compassionate and deeply cares about her clients."

– Satisfied Client

I engaged Karen Sendlebach after a strong recommendation from a friend who used her services. Going through a divorce is the worst thing you can go through as an adult, other than losing a loved one. One of Karen’s greatest strengths is that she is part lawyer and part therapist. She guided me through the landmines and helped me see the battles worth fighting and which ones were worth giving in on. This saved time and money.

As the process progressed you could see her experience and familiarity with the local judges and mediators and how they will perceive different parts of the case. Most importantly, she kept me on task and reminded me to stay focused on the goals. Without a doubt, I would recommend her services to anyone going through this painful process because her work ethic, intelligence and pragmatic approach is what you need during a challenging time. These traits will help save you money in the long run and help get you through the process and start the healing.

– Past Client

I really appreciate you going above and beyond your job today.

You showed patience, kindness and warmth to a stranger. It really meant a lot to me. It felt like light during my darkest hour.

– Mediation Client

As a mother of three young toddlers and a business owner, I cannot say enough about Lori’s expertise, honest and blunt guidance, as well as prompt responding! Her staff has performed above my expectations for kindness and promptness. My case was not easy. There were substantial marital assets. Lori was able to tease through it all while making sure that I was abundantly clear on best and worst case scenarios. At every step she sees what I need and what I am entitled to from a legal standpoint.

I cannot say enough about her as a lawyer, a professional woman, a working mom or her entire firm. Everyone at NSSSB has a personal touch that is refreshing when what we are faced with is raw, hard and emotional! The billing process is beyond clear and you never wonder what you’ve paid for.

– Mother of 3

Thank you for all your help today.
You handled the other attorney extremely well.

– anonymous

"That was a lot of time and effort to dedicate to helping this family.

Thank you soo soo much for working with us and resolving this case!!"

"I second that wholeheartedly. You had what felt like an impossible task and did an amazing job pulling everyone together. I cannot tell you how appreciative we are of your time and wisdom. Have a great holiday."

– from attorneys who mediated their case to settlement a week before trial.

I really appreciate all your efforts throughout the mediation. I truly felt that you had [my child’s] best interests in mind, which was incredibly reassuring. I still dont know how you kept going yesterday without eating all day! I know that I was fuzzy by late afternoon!

Although I’m not 100% happy with the outcome, I understand that it is not possible to get everything in a negotiation. I actually did get more than I expected financially. The other stuff is really unimportant as I know that....is unlikely to fulfill his part. And if he does, all the better for [my child]! I know that [my former partner] is a tough person to deal with and everyone involved spent a lot more time on this than necessary. I sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience. I always felt that you appreciated my thoughts and were personally invested in getting a fair agreement that we all could live with.

– Ann Arbor Mother and Business Owner

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
